Stefun Darts saved up his entire life to give his grandparents the ultimate surprise.
Last week, the Houston college student did just that –with a $15,000 check for the mortgage of their home.
“I promised God in the second grade I would pay off you guys’ house and help you retire. A promise I would never break,” he wrote on Facebook.
“Even with this, I could never repay you for what you've done for me. I sacrificed my teenage and early adulthood of not having fun for this moment.
I couldn't stand you going to work at night, some nights I didn't even sleep knowing it shouldn't be like this.
Never have I wrote a check wanting this to be the first one. “
Family members filmed as Darts presented the check to his tearful grandparents. In addition to paying off their mortgage, he also gave them a trip to the Bahamas.
Darts “is a full-time college student and also holds down a full-time job, while running two small non-profits,” KHOU reported.
“I couldn’t believe it,” said Marilyn Roberts, Darts’ grandmother. “To have a grandson like that is a blessing.”
